Manchester United and Tottenham are reportedly interested in signing a very talented and a young midfielder, David Brooks. The Bournemouth offensive midfielder has been in good form for the club and has been linked with a move away from the club for some time now.
New Reds boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also reported to have shown interest in the young Welsh International. David Brooks has so far started in 19 games in the Premier League and has scored 5 goals along with 2 assists.
He has led the Cherries attack this season along with Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser. The former Sheffield United player also loves to play in an advanced offensive role. In the previous campaign, David Brooks even played on many occasions as a second striker as well.
However, the versatile midfielder won’t come cheap as Bournemouth are not likely to settle for anything less than £40million. The Welshman is also not likely to change ships as recent reports did suggest that David Brooks is in line to receive a new Bournemouth contract and he is also interested in signing it.
David Brooks will be offered a new deal at Bournemouth only half a season since joining the club from Sheffield United.

But, if Manchester United and Tottenham come knocking his door, then the versatile midfielder may even consider endeavoring new challenges in his career.
The reason for profound interest from two such big Premier League teams is his young age and versatile play. He is just 21 and is already a regular in Eddie Howe’s side.
Brook’s contribution in the offensive end is also noteworthy for pumping his side to mid-table and challenging the top sides as well.
His addition will certainly bolster any team but he is very unlikely to be promoted directly to playing XI. Manchester United have been in an incredible form ever since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Latest On Manchester United:
The Red Devils have scored 17 goals in all competitions in the 6 games they have played under Ole and have conceded just thrice in the same time. The Reds have managed to keep 3 clean sheets in this period in consecutive matches.
Manchester United seemed to have found a perfect balanced XI. Currently, they also have decent players on the bench as well.
David Brooks may not be necessary signing for the Reds but, considering his young age and immense potential, he may be a steal at £40million. Also, a good Premier League experience and his homegrown status can be an added advantage.
